[Slackbuilds-users] removepkg and hyphens: weird behaviour

I just noticed something strange. Apparently removepkg doesn't work 
correctly when a package name contains three or more hyphens. Usually 
it's enough to just give the plain package name as argument to 
removepkg, say 'removepkg sqlite' or 'removepkg cups'. But I tried it on 
a custom-built package jack-audio-connection-kit, and removepkg tells me 
that there is no such package. I could remove the package by changing 
into /var/log/packages and giving the full package name 
(jack-audio-connection-kit-0.103.0-i486-1_nk) as argument.

Any clues?
